This is a hack to get around the fact that linux did not have a DHCPD
client. There is a debian dhcpcd (client daemon) package in bo, it should
be a matter of installing this package and watching as everything works ;>
At least that is how dhcpd is suppost to work.

D-Link 220's are PnP NE-2000 clones. If you get isapnptools you should be
able to configure the card in linux and then use the ne driver.
